AUSTRALIAN BUREAU OF STATISTICS (ABS)

NAME OF COLLECTION

Crime Victimisation Survey (CVS)

OVERVIEW

The national Crime Victimisation Survey was conducted for the first time in 2008-09 as a result of a redevelopment of the national Crime and Safety Survey. The newly developed survey focuses on selected categories of more serious crime and high volume crimes and the scope is restricted to persons aged 15 years and over.

The Crime Victimisation Survey is conducted annually as part of the ABS Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS). The MPHS is conducted throughout Australia as a supplement to the Labour Force Survey. The survey forms part of a commitment by the ABS to present a comprehensive view of crime and the criminal justice system in Australia.

The national Crime Victimisation Survey produces one main output:

  • Crime Victimisation, Australia (cat. no. 4530.0) was first released in February 2010 and includes data about victims for a selected range of personal and household offences, whether victims reported these incidents to police, characteristics of victims and characteristics of their most recent incident, and people's perceptions of safety and problems in their neighbourhood.

Data items contained within these topics are capable of being cross classified with Data Items Relevant to Migrants and Ethnicity.
